I'm the first to say to my friends 'let's not bother with gifts, we'll just go for a drink instead'. I find it that takes the stress out of gift buying, it avoids spending money on things that are at risk of sitting in a cupboard and never being used and it ensures I spend… Continue reading Gift giving tradition with someone special
I think I have a slight obsession with candles. I have way too many candles! I mean, I could probably stock my own shop, there's that many in my collection! I just love them though. I have large jar candles, votives, wax melts, tealights and so the list goes on. I have every colour of the rainbow… Continue reading You can’t have too many candles!
Ok, so technically that title is incorrect. It is still Autumn but it definitely feels like Winter now! There has been a morning frost on more than one occasion and my big, cosy coats are out...not to mention the hats, scarves, gloves etc! With Christmas just around the corner (less than a month now, sorry… Continue reading Now it’s Winter!

Now, I thought I would switch it up with this… Continue reading The book versus movie debate: The Devil Wears Prada

As I have mentioned in my Going for a wander post I love getting out and about walking and when it… Continue reading Autumn is here!
So, I have read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz now and I was not disappointed! It’s a brilliant read and if you haven’t checked it out yet, then I can highly recommend it! I wasn’t sure what to expect because I am so well versed with the film but, once I began reading it I… Continue reading The book versus movie debate: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
I've just started reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Have you read it? I don't know why it has taken me this long because I have seen the movie a gazillion times! I love it, it's one of my favourites. It always pops up on the TV around Christmas time with all the other staples… Continue reading The book versus movie debate
Let me tell you a quick story about my dad. He has a laptop bag (it was a briefcase back in the day) and it always was (I’m sure it still is) full of stationery, all neatly organised. I remember looking at all the pens and other bits and pieces and wanting to just help… Continue reading The happiness that new stationery brings
Following on from my post Happy Roald Dahl Day! which you can read by clicking the link, I was really curious to see how many other people in my life enjoyed his literature. So, after many messages to friends and family I have compiled a list of titles and reasons that made the cut as a… Continue reading My favourite author and my favourite people
So, it's September 13th. Which just so happens to be Roald Dahl Day; a fun celebration held on the anniversary of his birthday and, as he is one of my favourite authors, I thought it would be fitting to put a post up on this day. I'm not sure if you have heard of Roald… Continue reading Happy Roald Dahl Day!
